Back in my craft room xx

Well at last I've been able to go back in to my craft room and here is my first card now I can actually find my stash and its actually all in the correct place so I'm a happy Bunny!!
Life has had so many ups and downs these last few months well to be honest the last four years but I have stopped counting but I am hopeful things are getting back to some normality if there is such a thing.  Over the last few months I've also had the carpel tunnel done in both my hands which has been very restricting and is still quite painful but hopefully will mean in the end no more pain when colouring!!!!!!! lol 
Anyway on to my card as you can see it's a Thank You card and is for my Sister-in-Law's Mum and Dad who gave my the gorgeous clock below which I love and will treasure always.
My fabulous new House Mouse stamp which I purchased from Ebay was so lucky found some amazing designs that I had never seen before.
Here is my beautiful clock which is just fabulous and fits in with my decor just perfectly.
Close up of the stamp which is called Eek Eek Eek!!!!! The sentiment stamp is from SU. 
House Mouse and Friends have from this month started with the option of the current theme which is Sunny Days but now you can join in with Anything Goes.
As always I have coloured in with my Pro Markers added lots of glamour dust and viva pearls.
This divine paper is from The Craft Box at Elsecar I hadn't been for months and my Niece Kerry took me as we where both desperate for a craft fix mine really was "A Paper Fix" lol xx
Flowers as always and the perfect co-ordinated "Thank You" ribbon.

Side Shot.
Another ebay purchase which I had to have stamped onto white card then inked with Tim Holtz ink pads.
The inside I have added another SU sentiment.
Challenges I am entering are:
House- Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge  - HMFMC169  - Sunny Days or Anything Goes
Gruffies and Guests - CH#5  -  Anything goes with the option of Spring
Dream Valley  -  Anything Goes 
The Ribbon Girl  -  Flowers
Stamping Sensations  -  Anything Goes
Now on the my "Four" year old Granddaughter I really can't believe she's four!!!  Anyway this is with her mummy Rochelle my eldest daughter.
At the riding school.
Birthday Girl!!!!!
She looks a real doll in the outfit!!!!! lol
Anyway if you are still reading thanks for taking the time to visit my blog I have lost a few followers but I do understand as I've really neglected this space.
Anyway I always love reading your comments and will return the compliment and pop over to see your wonderful work which I have been viewing just not commenting.

I hope your carpel tunnel op will leave you pain free very soon. Beautiful card - those House Mouse stamps are so cute. I can't believe your granddaughter is four - although I shouldn't really be surprised as our youngest granddaughter will be two in July - just where does the time go?
